DERRY, N.H. -- Cedar Point Communications, Inc., the leader in integrated packet-based voice switching technologies for the cable industry, announced today the appointment of Andy Paff as President and CEO.

Paff, well regarded as an executive and an innovator within the industry, joins Cedar Point after three years with Broadband Services, Inc., where he served as chief technology officer and was responsible for new business development and the operations of the company’s MapVantage™ unit. Previously, he had held senior positions with such companies as Antec Corporation, now Arris, and Worldbridge Broadband Services.

"Andy Paff's diverse background -- as a CEO, an entrepreneur, an engineer and a cable veteran – made him the ideal choice to guide Cedar Point as we move toward more widespread field implementations of our SAFARI C³™ Media Switching System,” said Mark Galvin, founder and chairman of Cedar Point Communications. “His knowledge of the issues the industry faces, and his leadership skills, backed by the tremendous team of senior executives the company has already attracted, will drive the implementation of converged applications and services for the industry. I expect that Andy will develop a long-term position for Cedar Point as a substantial supplier to the cable industry, building from the company's initial product focus."

“Telephony clearly is one of the next growth areas for the industry,” said Paff. “Like Broadband Services, Cedar Point has developed an innovative, best-in-class approach that delivers real value for cable system operators. I’m excited about becoming a part of the company, and look forward to working with the operator community on the delivery of high-quality, cost-effective VoIP solutions.”

Among Paff’s accomplishments at BSI were the development and deployment of the company’s MapVantage Intelligent Mapping solution as well the Supply Chain Management tools that encompass BSI’s asset management system.
